I have an MS WORD file that was produced by optical character recognition. It is very messy. I will provide the original file in PDF format as a guide to doing all the cleaning. We should be able to do this with the transfer of files through the internet (via e-mail or some other way, e.g. Drop Box) if the files are too large.

The MSWORD page count is 98. Here is an example of the text that needs to be cleaned:
